From their workshop in the small Swiss town of Le Brassus, Audemars Piguet dedicates the best craftsmanship in the art of fine watchmaking. As hallmark of its spirit, aesthetics and design, the Royal Oak has become an iconic model. Its bold lines and the level of detail in every design is what makes this master watchmaker different from the others. The long tradition from the house still run by its founding family is noticeable in every piece.
Audemars Piguet sponsored the Alinghi Sailing Team at the world-famous America's Cup for most of the 2000s, including its major wins in 2003 and 2007.
This extremally popular and collectible watch, known as the Alinghi Polaris, was made in honour of the team in a limited edition of 1.935 pieces. The striking red, white and black chronograph display incorporates a unique 10-minute countdown arrangement specifically for regattas. The reverse-numbered inner flange can be rotaded by the 10 o'clock crown to allow countdown for a different number of minutes.
